Finally, the time has come for you to coyly put your right hand on any table and show off your beautiful engagement ring. Aside from enjoying the attention from your relatives and peers, you finally have the chance to adorn your wedding dress!

There are so many types of weddings, starting from an outdoor wedding by the green fields, to the grand wedding at a majestic ballroom with twinkling chandeliers. However, the eventual wedding venue plays a big role in what type of wedding gown you should go for. Read on to find out more about which type of wedding you are likely to hold and what wedding gowns would be a good match!

Type 1: If Your Celebration Is Held At A Hotel, The Right Wedding Dress Would Be…

Holding a wedding at a hotel is one of Singapore’s common choices when it comes to shortlisting the wedding venue. On top of that, there is such a huge variety of hotels to explore in Singapore. Options range from ballroom space to the size of the halls, and even the gastronomical cuisine that they offer.

There are two things that you have to consider when you are selecting your wedding gown.

Firstly, you have to consider the ceiling and height of the ballroom.

If the hotel’s ballroom has a lower ceiling, you should stay away from wedding gowns that come with a long train. Although wedding gowns with a long train are usually associated with elegance, they will make you a lot smaller if you were to wear them in a room that has a lower ceiling. At the same time, it is advisable to select a slimmer silhouette to give yourself a longer frame. Mermaid cuts with a shorter tail would be perfect too!

Secondly, you have to consider the size of the ballroom! If you are holding a wedding within a small space, it is better to choose an A-line or mermaid cut. The reason why you should avoid ball gowns is because of the restricted walking space. You will find yourself spending a lot of effort tugging your wedding gown as you greet your guests

Type 2: If Your Celebration Is Held Outdoors, The Right Wedding Dress Would Be…

There is a reason why outdoor weddings are rising in popularity. It doesn’t matter whether the wedding is held in the day or night because both settings are uniquely beautiful.

On one hand, the natural daylight peeking through the fluffy clouds will enhance the colours of your surrounding. The natural elements of lush greenery and floral shades will transform your wedding into a picturesque sight. When the wedding comes to a close, the skies will transform into a prismatic tableau.

If you prefer to hold your wedding at night, you will get to enjoy the breeze under the stars. Build a large tentage at an open space with majestic draping, throw in a lot of fairy lights, and voila. You will achieve a dream wedding scape straight out of Pinterest.

Of course, the overall décor is dependent on whether you are holding your wedding in an empty space or if it is held at a hotel/restaurant.

Usually, it is recommended for brides to wear a wedding gown that is a simpler design without too many crystal embellishments to match the scenic nature. Also, it is best to select wedding gowns in A-line with a shorter tail. If you really want to look like a princess on your outdoor wedding day, then select a wedding gown that comes with a skirt. However, ensure that the skirt is big yet not too poufy.

Type 3: If Your Celebration Is Held At A Restaurant, The Right Wedding Dress Would Be…

Due to the shrinking sizes of wedding guests and the preference for intimate weddings, restaurants are starting to gain popularity among engaged couples. There is a wide variety of restaurants in Singapore that offer different cuisines. These options range from Chinese to Western and even Italian! Don’t be surprised if you find it challenging to select the ideal restaurant from such a dizzying array!

The only thing to look out for in weddings held in restaurants is the size of the space. Unlike hotels, the space at restaurants is more limited! So, if you want to wear a wedding gown in A-line or ball gown cut, you need to consider the length of the skirt and the wideness of the skirt.
